I was writing something up when this issue came up.
Everybody is wedded to a clique of some kind
Everybody is wedded to a clique of some kind or other
Can somebody tell me what the difference is between these two? The first sentence is, I believe correct. The rational part of me and my intuition both say it is correct. My intuition also says the second is grammatically sound, but I can't for the life of me figure out how or why. Do both of these communicate the same thing albeit in a different way?
